Dunhill: Dress with Silver (1303) (2016)
Product Number: 002-015-4607
Dunhill's Group 1 designation features some of the smallest pipes the English marque has to offer and this "03" Billiard may be the most petite Dunhill I've ever seen. This lengthy piece is definitely not lacking anything in terms of charm. Certainly an ideal choice for anyone seeking to acquire a Dunhill, but prefer lightweight pipes with smaller chambers. Not to mention that it's quite difficult to beat a classic English Billiard dressed in the marque's classy Dress finish.
One of the most fashionable finishes in all of pipe making and one that inspired an entire aesthetic, Dunhill's Dress finish was first introduced in 1973 and is meant to elegantly complement a tuxedo or similar formal wear, perfect for a night on the town. Characterized by its glossy, jet-black stain and sterling silver accent band, the Dress finish exudes class and imbues each pipe it adorns with a sense of refinement and sophistication. It's the progenitor of the term "dress pipe," now used to reference any black-and-silver pipe, and is one of the most distinctive finishes in all of pipedom.- Jeffery Sitts
